Yes, I finally look pregnant


Question:
When is it okay for people to comment on weight gain?
When you are pregnant...but in my opinion, IT IS NOT OKAY.

I have to get this off my chest, so pardon me if I offend, but hearing that I look pregnant or that I am beginning to show totally pisses me off. There are many women who relish in their pregnant bellies and people's belly focused attention, but I am not one of those women. In my opinion, it is equivalent to pointing out a giant cyst-like zit in the middle of my nose. Yes, I am are fully aware that it is there, so you needn't point it out.

And yes, you may say, "But Morgan, you are posting pictures of your belly on your blog, how can you not want us to comment?"
The whole reason I am posting these pictures is so that you can make these comments out of my earshot. I figure if I point it out first, then I don't have to be there to hear about it. It is my way of pointing it out before anyone else has the chance to say it to me. Warped logic I know, but what alternative exists?

To sum it up, when you see me, don't say anything about the belly and it's growing size, I know it is there. And I know it is surprising, but please please show some restraint.

  1. Morgan, I ADORE your writing!
    I think people just don't know what to do with the, pardon the expression, elephant in the room. We see your belly expanding and aren't quite sure if we should press on and ignore it, or gush. So many women prefer the gush. Especially if they need reassurance, to reference your question, that they are indeed pregnant, not fat! I totes understand where you are coming from though. Say it girl!
    Also, check out my buddy's blog, www.mybrandnewlifeasarunner.blogspot.com
    She ran a 10k every month of her pregnancy and blogged all about her journey. You may have to go back about a year as Marcus is now a few months old. Plus, she's Canadian so bonus cool points there.
